A while back I revamped my all trusted heavy duty desk with a new hardwood plate and a suspended computer mount. That project can see seen here http://forums.overclockers.co.uk/showth ... t=18566378

Then last month I found out my local timber yard had a large amount of hardwood shelves on must go away sale from the same manufacturer where I bought my desktop. I decided to build a monitor platform to raise the monitors a bit and gain some more space to put away the mouse, keyboard and other stuff.

I made a sketch to make sure the monitors would line up nicely in the joints of the platform. (I'm making a program or spreadsheet later, where you can just put in the dimensions of your monitors and choose between some design options and it will return the sketches and measurements you need for making one yourself.)

Work in progress

The plates are cut according to plan

Glued together and later oiled

Gluing on the legs

The platform closer up

Added IKEA LED light strips under the platform towards the back

With the curtains pulled to darken the room a bit

The suspended computer mount

Image

The case is a SilverStone FT02B and its layout is 90° turned compared to the usual layout of cases. So the motherboard and GPU connectors are at the top.

I really like the use of wood. Nice mix of lo-fi and hi-tech.

Any update on your program. I am trying to figure out how much distance there is from the left edge of the left monitor to the right edge of the right monitor in a 3 monitor configuration when the outboard monitors as facing me from a slight angle.

All of my monitors are Asus ROG Swift PG278Q (27" diagonal). Great gaming monitor BTW.
